MY MAN GODFREY
Dizzy socialite Carole Lombard discovers a vagrant — played with insouciant verve by William Powell — who stands for every “forgotten man" of the Great Depression who harbored dreams of bringing the rich to their knees before setting them on a path of moral righteousness. A cruel streak runs through the film’s madcap zaniness; never before — or since — has America’s privileged set been portrayed as such shrill, alcoholic nitwits. The film garnered six Oscar® nominations and was named to the National Film Registry in 1999. (Note courtesy of MoMA.) DIR/PROD Gregory La Cava; SCR Eric Hatch, Morrie Ryskind, from Hatch’s novel. U.S., 1936, b&w, 94 min, DCP. NOT RATED
